So I agree completely with the little mag, and mf3rs2 for 3x3 budget but one thing that gets me is the great. The yj mgc is alright and it could work for some ppl, but overall most people dont have the buggest pull towards it. A cube that should for sure go in great should be mf3rs2m. Its just as good as the most expensive cubes, and should be in that spot. You can keep mgc but for the love of god pls add mf3rs2m. Lol

I'm lookin for a new 3x3, I've got $$, but I don't particularly like the WRM or GTS3M. Or the 354. And I'm not allowed to buy a gan x. (Too expensive)
I was looking at maybe a tenyun or gan air sm? What do you guys think?


And for 2x2 expert I really really like the 251, better than the valk 2. What do you guys think?

Tengyun
Do you like the 51 millimeter size? If so, than 251 could be good. I personally am fine with smaller 2x2, I main a Weipo M, I think the Weipo WRM is excellent. I don’t have one yet though:( I would make sure I really like the 251 because it is really expensive, and there are many cheaper, smaller options.
Maybe wait for Gan XS to see price?

I've heard it's pretty good, even though I haven't tried it myself.

Did you try a tengyun at the comp? what about a valk 3 m? basically everyone likes that cube, betides being old. MF3RS2M? Dyan wang once used it as his main, its cheap, corner cuts good and smoothly, and is supposedly similar to the gts2m if I recollect correctly. Tingman mains to the 251 stickered, because the sticker less version is slightly matte and hard to grip

I'm also looking for a new main for 3x3. I deciding between the GTS3M, WRM, Gan Air SM and the MF3RS2M. Which one would you recommend to me if I want a cube that is stable, smooth and has okayish speed?

I have all 4 and for what your looking for it sounds like the mf3rs2m is what your looking for. Its actually on the slower end, but if you turn just a bit harsher, its one of the most controllable cubes ive ever touched, and very enjoyable to turn which is a big factor. The air sm would also be nice but i think the mfm would be better. The gts3 and wr arent very smooth, and are a little uncontrollable and fast. But the strong magnets make up for it. They are all amazing cubes but i think the mf3rs2m would be best. Your welcome

I didn't have a chance to try one at the comp, and I don't really want to spend that much on something I might dislike
Ok. Seeing as you tried both the tengyun and the air sm, which one do you honestly like better, disregarding that it is gan and you really want a gan puzzle? Also, would you mum let you buy an air sm? its also stickered only too. I've heard the tengyun feels really glidey, hence its name
